OtterBox Agility Tablet System Review
      #48150 - 06/09/15 07:35 PM

The OtterBox Agility Tablet System isn't just a case. When it works with all the other components in the Agility eco system, it becomes a versatile solution that gives your tablet the protection and productivity you need out of it. The Agility system currently includes a folio case that protects the entire tablet, a folio keyboard case, a folio bag, a wall mount, a dock and a power dock. Just take your iPad in the Agility case and magnetically dock onto any of the accessories, and you're ready to go. The OtterBox Agility Tablet System is available for all iPad and iPad mini models.


The barebones of the OtterBox Agility Tablet System is a sturdy shell case that's not too different from OtterBox Defender series case. The shell has a strong hard back and a layer of shock absorbent TPU interior that also covers the edges of the front screen. The softer edges of the shell case also make it easier to install and take off the case. The Agility shell case covers the buttons on the iPad Air 2 but provides button covers that have great tactile feedback when you press the buttons. The case has cutouts for all the ports and the rear camera with perfect alignment.

The back of the case has a round cutout and a mount insert that allows the case to work with a myriad of accessories. It's worth to mention that the case connects with the docks, mounts and folios via a metal plate around the cutout. However, the metal plate connects to the case via a double-sided adhesive sheet. This sheet is rather thin and the plate on our unit has fallen off a few times while we tried to separate the case from the mounts or folios.


The versatility of the OtterBox Agility Tablet System largely comes from the supporting cast. The desk mounts and the wall mount are made with strong and thick hard plastic, and the folio cases, including the keyboard case, are made with good quality faux leather for the exterior with sufficient inserts and soft microfiber interior. All the accessories feature the same mounting system that can hold the tablet magnetically, and they can hold the tablet not only steadily but also in either landscape or portrait orientation. The magnetic mounting design makes it easier to dock the iPad quickly and take it away from the docks or cases easily as well.

The OtterBox Agility Tablet System includes the desk Dock in both black and light gray, the Power Dock that can charge the iPad while it's docked and smartphones, the Wall Mount, the Portfolio leather case in black and apple gray, the Deluxe Folio case in light gray and the Keyboard Portfolio case in black.


The OtterBox Agility Tablet System is designed for those who use their tablet for productivity, for cooking, for multimedia viewing and for traveling. The system offers different ways to hold your tablet on a desk, on a wall and in transit. The Agility shell case provides good protection against scratches, nicks, bumps and even drops, though it doesn't protect against water; while the accessories add good functionality to help you get the most out of your tablet. We like the easy-to-use magnetic mount and the sheer number of accessories that you just don't see in other systems. You can customize which accessories you need to go with the system. Like with OtterBox's other cases, the Agility cases and mounts are super sturdy which also means they add more bulk than slim cases. The back metal plate that connects the case with the magnets in the mounts comes off as the adhesive dries.

Editor's Ratings (1-5): 4
What's Hot: Versatile design, many ways to protect and hold your tablet, available for all iPad models.
What's Not: Adds some bulk and weight to the slim tablet. The metal plate comes off sometimes.
